The only gripe I have with my 2019 Frontier SL Crew Cab is the front wheels don't cramp enough to get in tight spots, backing out of driveway, etc. Has anyone found a solution to this? Underneath the truck on a lift, it looks like the front wheels could Go little more in either direction. There are no travel stops on the control arms, or steering knuckles.

Ridix,

This is a Common Complaint.

I noticed this on my 2013 right away, and that the
turning radius was larger than on the 1993 Hardbody that
I drove for 20 year's.

After a while I got used to it and am able to manage
maneuvering my truck without much trouble. However it
would be nice if the truck had a tighter turning radius,,
but I've learned to live with it.

Be extremely careful any adjustment's that can be made on
your truck involving the Steering.

You could talk this over with the Nissan Service Manager,
but other than that, I wouldn't put much Trust in
somebody else makeing adjustment's that might help in one
aspect,, but hurt in another.

One other thing that I've learned over the year's is: Do
not put a lot of pressure on the Steering Stop's. That
will put a lot of Stress on the Hydraulic Steering
Cylinder and Might cause it to start leaking. When I am
turning to maximum,, I try to gently hit the Steering
Stop's and then back off just a little bit. This is
something that I learned to do from operateing other
machine's like Tractor's with Hydraulic Steering.

Good Luck
